    Hi Kate
    Just come across a very brief mention of Ashun .
    From 5 RHA war diaries 24 May 1945 .
    Location .Sokels (I think) Germany ,
    This is after the German Surrender.

    Dvr (Driver ) Ashun to hospital.
    .

    He is the only Ashun I have come across in 5 RHA so it looks like he was demoted from Sergeant to Driver at some time.

    I wondered about that.

    Talking to a group of ex paras working in the personal security business, I met a 3 Para Falklands veteran whose nickname was N******. "We could call him that, but if anyone one else did, it would start a fight"
